The Hanuman Temple was founded in 2021 by GICA (Global Indian Cultural Association) - not for profit cultural association. This perhaps is the only temple in New Jersey dedicated to Bajrang Bali. The temple provides religious and spiritual services to the Indian community. The temple has a priest, Shri Hari Sharma who leads pooja and various rituals.
Our objective is to maintain our Indian Cultural Heritage among us and promote the values of our rich heritage to our younger generation to bring them to participate and maintain the Indian Cultural Heritage.
निश्चय प्रेम प्रतीतिहिं ते, विनय करे सह मान।
तेहि के कारज सकल शुभ, सिद्ध करैं हनुमान।।
भावार्थ: जो कोई भी राम भक्त श्री बजरंग बली हनुमान के सामने संकल्प लेता है और उनसे पूरी भक्ति और प्रेम से प्रार्थना करता है, श्री हनुमान उनके सभी कार्यों को आशीर्वाद देते हैं।
Temple is administered by a board of directors and advisors.
